Expo aims to reduce power costs

The Renewable Energy Expo in Narooma on Saturday 25 November is creating a buzz among householders and local businesses wanting to save on power bills and be more environmentally sustainable.

It is a Narooma Rotary community project.

Expo coordinator Frank Eden says ‘so much is happening in renewable energy and battery development at the moment’.

‘People are keen to get the latest information and talk with suppliers and experts about the way ahead,’ he said.

‘They want to find out how to save on power bills, be more environmentally sustainable, and about future investment opportunities.’

Last year’s Expo was such a success with exhibitors and visitors coming from across south-eastern NSW and Canberra, that Narooma Rotary has built on that experience for this year’s Expo.

Frank is delighted with the response from both exhibitors and sponsors.

‘We’re expecting about 20 exhibitors at the Expo in Narooma’s Sport & Leisure Centre,’ he said.

‘They include solar panel and solar hot water suppliers, battery suppliers, independent advisors on solar panel technologies and cutting costs and reducing emissions, sustainable housing, advisors on investing in solar farms, and we hope some electric cars and battery operated tools like chainsaws.’

The Expo is Saturday 25 November 10am-4pm with the official opening by Member for Eden Monaro Dr Mike Kelly at 10.30am.

Saturday night’s Expo Forum at Club Narooma (starts at 7.00pm, entry is free) features three speakers, all leaders in their field. They are:

  • Kylie Hitchman from ClearSky Solar

  • Caleb Fisher from Divall Constructions in Goulburn

  • Mark Shorter, Sustainability Coordinator with Eurobodalla Shire Council. Council aims to source 100% of its electricity from renewable energy by 2030.

A panel discussion will follow with a wide range of experts.

An Expo dinner at 6pm will precede the forum. Bookings essential via the website.
